Thanks, Bromley! Merry Christmas to you and yours, too. And I know we all
join you in hoping for more definitive progress in our fight against MS, as soon as possible
I'll bet you'd also be very gratified if this next year brings solid news of at least
one honest-to-God, scientifically inscrutable
study on LDN, that strongly supports it's use by MS patients. Wouldn't that be great?
And I love your idea about creating an online calendar with MS-relevant information, like the dates when research results are expected to be released, etc. Great idea
Maybe the calendar could also have a few landmark dates in the history of MS treatment thrown in, for perspective. I find it helpful to occasionally remind myself that millions of other people have been dealing with the frustrations and uncertainty of this disease throughout the ages, but only very
recently has there been anything
at all for anyone to take for it.
And of course the CRABs were a huge breakthrough, although less-than-ideal with only about 33% efficacy. With that perspective in mind, I'm extremely grateful to read that we have new therapies, like Tysabri and probably LDN, etc., that appear to be twice
as effective as those more troublesome CRABs.
Which, if my math is right, means that we may have just gone from being only about 1/3 of the way to total control of MS (with CRABs) to being about 2/3
of the way (with Tysabri), right? Hey, one more giant step like that and we're there!
